The Largest selection of candy on the Pacific coast, making us the candy destination of Seaside, Oregon. Featuring over 3,000 candy items. We have home made fudge, Saltwater taffy, chocolates, truffles, Jelly Belly, candy bars, huge selection of scoop candy, bulked wrapped candy, and so much more. Our motto is "If you can't eat it we don't sell it", our secondary motto being "if they still make it, more than likely we have it".

If you have kids you have to stop by The Buzz when in Seaside. They have salt water taffy, fudge, ice cream, truffles, retro candy, candy bars, gum, jelly beans, just about every kind of fun candy you can imagine. They even dip twinkies in chocolate and other combinations. They also have more adult gourmet candy bars. My husband got... More

Chocolate truffles, taffy, candy bars you don't see anywhere else. I always spend at least an hour here while I am in Seaside. It is very hard to make a choice with so many available.

The Buzz was recently bought out by Schwietert's and they have made some changes, the candy selection is not quite as big, especially the old nostalgic candy choices, but the ice cream selection is great! They have eliminated some of the chocolate by the pound selection was well so we didn't buy any here. But the Salt Water Taffy is... More

Looks like this store is under new management and is owned by another candy shop in Cannon Beach. I loved the Buzz in years past especially the fudge. There does seem to be a few more options for the fudge but they have raised the prices and that's too bad. Hopefully the buyout will turn out to be a good... More

Astounding variety of candy, over 3000. With the variety it is very hard to choose which flavours of salt water taffy. Lots of candies we have not seen in years. Great chocolate too. Very friendly, helpful staff.

I was surprised to find such a wide selection of different and unique flavors of salt water taffy. I especially liked choosing my own, but they also have packages made up if you don't have the time to make your own selections. Taffy was soft and delicious.

This store has the best selection of candy I have ever seen! I have been looking for gummy sharks for a long time and they had those and everything else you could think of. Very, very fun to visit!

When I walked in, I got a smile and a hello from everyone. I was asked immediately if I needed help and had yet another staff person explain my choices and check me out. All were friendly, made eye contact and smiles, and showed me that my business was important. Oh, and the candy is delicious too. They have every... More

As you would expect, most of the candy is overpriced. But the selection is amazing! They have everything you could think of, plus a ton of stuff you never thought of. However, the fudge is what keeps us going back. Huge selection, great prices.

My wife I go here to see all the many kinds of retro candy as well as the modern candy. So many kinds and the prices are resonable. I have bought many PEZ Collector Sets there as well as the individual PEZ. A must see if in Seaside
